Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started using Findagrave for my genealogy research and am now adding the veterans who have passed away from the obituaries in my hometown newspaper.

I am also involved in helping the people in the Netherlands find information about the US soldiers they have adopted who are buried in Margraten Cemetery.

I live in Florida, originally from Pennsville, NJ. My families are Zimmerman, Brandriff, Earl, Harris and Abel all from the Cumberland County area of New Jersey.

RE: Di Mauro Updates
What a precious work you are doing! Thanks so much for this. One of the things I watch for when I visit cemeteries are the military markers… I try and photograph as many as I can and add them to this website. They deserve to be remembered. Take care and blessings to you, Dana Garrow

Mauro updates
Hi Laura! Thanks for the updates to the Mauro memorials in St. Mary's Cemetery. If you are in any way related, I'd be happy to transfer them to your care… I'm not related at all and would love for family to maintain them. Just let me know! Blessings, Dana

Thanks Laura - if the tree is the one I think it is, the person hasn't used the account in a long time. I wish I could get hold of them. Thanks for adding the pictures to findagrave where I can actually see them :)

Technical Sergeant Leo M. Cawdrey
Technical Sergeant Leo M. Cawdrey was lost on D-Day of the invasion of Sicily: 10 July 1943. His body was never accounted for and his name is inscribed on the Wall of Missing of the Carthage Cemetery in Tunis, North Africa.

I have just finished (10 July 2015) the project "They stayed behind", the story of the temporary American GELA Cemetery on Sicily, where over 1,200 men and women have been buried between July 1943 and April 1947. If his remains would have been found, he would probably have been buried at Gela.

It is available on DVD. I have added a chapter "missing in action". You took a picture of the Wall of Missing or of his cenotaph or added a newspaperclipping and I would like to ask your permission to use the picture you took on my DVD. Of course you will be credited

thank you
